A picture showing wagons carrying bales of woollen rags destined for J.F. Burrows Victoria Mills located off the Green in Ossett. The picture dates back to the early 1950s when Victoria Mill was in full production.

Burmatex currently occupy Victoria Mills and for many years the facility has been used for the manufacture of carpets. Recently, Burmatex announced that they were selling off the Victoria Mills site for housing development and it is likely that the mill buildings will be demolished and new houses built in their place.
